BTW, if you're stupid enough just to create an account on this system, you`re totally f***ed for life even if you don`t sign up.

He needs a big clock on that bare wall behind him...

"No Whammies!" = Press Your Luck gameshow :-)

I'm pretty sure you STILL have to sign up to an Insurance Company even AFTER you sign up on ObamaCare...

Since it cost $500 Million bucks to MAKE the ACA Website? I think it still counts as "epic fail", eh?

When I bought my own insurance after I went freelance about 12 years ago, I went on esurance.com and compared plans for my state. Then I had to fill out a long questionnaire about my health history before I got accepted. I changed plans at least once since then to lower my rate as I could afford a higher deductible. Blue Cross sent me a letter the other day telling me what my 2014 monthly payments were changing to, since it goes up every year and especially on milestone birthdays like the one I have coming next year. I compared my plan to the ones MN is offering on exchanges and I'll probably stay with what I have. There is a cheaper one ($154 vs $190) in the exchanges but I`ve never heard of Preferred One and know most places accept Blue Cross. A HealthPartners plan was pretty comparable as well. I was able to compare plans just using my zip code and birthdate. NOT THAT HARD.

"The last time I bought private health insurance, I called up three insurance agents, told them what I wanted, they called me back the next day with quotes, and I bought the cheapest one."

What? You didn't have to answer any questions about medical history or pre-existing conditions? I call bulls.hit on that.
